3ds version is $20 although out of the 2 wii u version imo is better hands down.

I'm really tempted, but I've heard so many bad things.

I paid around $36 and have no regrets. The controls are more complex than other Sonic games, but it's a very unique (and beautiful) game. Not perfect by any means, but one of the better Wii U games IMO.

It was also on groupon recently for $30, new users got a $10 off coupon to drop it to $20.

IMO in this price range i think 101 and Luigi Bros are the better buys if you dont already own them.

My little bro got it and said it was "okay". If you're buying it for yourself, I'd say wait on $15. I'd expect it to hit $20 regularly soon enough.

I'd wait, personally.

 

I rented it, and it's pretty mediocre. The art and music are top notch, but the level design and controls can be pretty frustrating.

:x I stocked up on eShop credit so I will wait for Nintendo to realize they need better digital sales. I feel like if I buy tthis now, with my backlog, it'll be cheaper before I even break the damn seal.

I picked it up for $30 and can honestly say it's closer to a 75-78 then the 63-65 that most reviewers game it.  It has its issues at times, but there were also some levels where Sega nailed it.   What I think dragged it down were some of the levels that tried to be like Super Mario Galaxy, because the game shines most when it goes off and does its own thing.  The Yoshi and Nights into Dreams DLC is short but it's a pretty cool addition too.

Is this a 3D or 2D Sonic game? If it's 2D, is it running at 60 fps? I cannot play 2D Sonic games at 30 fps like in Generations.

It's 3D with a couple of 2.5D levels, but it's at a smooth 60FPS.

Huh, I guess Amazon hasn't PMed it yet. I sent them the link. Hopefully it'll drop because I have so much Amazon gift card money sitting in my account right now.

Speaking of which, how long until the free DLC expires? Not the free Yoshi's Island one on the eShop but the one advertised on the games packaging.

Just wait until you get to the second world. The sand levels are so annoying and monotonous I could continue no longer.

They do have great sales on eShop. There are countless "big game" sales on 3DS. Wii U infact had all Ubi games (Zombi U, AC3 and others) for like $20-$30 off two months after launch
